Anita Louise West biography:
Ms. Anita Louise West has had a passion for painting from an early age. She graduated with a BA in Art from Missouri University. Ms. West went on to study at the Kansas City Art Institute on scholarship and earned a teaching certificate at the graduate level at UMKC. Teaching in public schools in Kansas, California and Texas, she continued to study and paint using oil, watercolor, acrylic and pastel.
Landscape painting on location helped to simplify the subject matter and paint without hesitation, and study the changing conditions of weather and light outdoors.
Anita’s fluency in all mediums and subject matter helps facilitate her students’ growth.
Having been a professional painter and business owner since 1989, Anita moved to Santa Fe, NM in 1993 where she was introduced to the national art world. She painted and taught workshops throughout the United States as well as Spain, France and Canada.
Returning to her childhood dream of painting in New York in 2007, Anita studied at the Art Students League with Mary Beth Mackenzie, Daniel Greene, Nelson Shanks and Richard Schmid. This experience in the studio helped her appreciate figure and portrait work as well as Plein Air painting. Co-author of Painting the Landscape in Pastel, Ms. West is capable of explaining and simplifying the materials and methods of painting in all mediums.
